Quincy Rose’s film entry into this years Cinequest film festival feels like a late night, comedy, cult classic, kindle to Kevin Smith’s “Chasing Amy,” and newcomer “The Overnight.” Surprisingly, the movie had a fresh take and managed to not be as cliché as the run-of-the-mill romantic comedy. When the first minute of dialogue someone proclaims to have the “Kate Moss of private parts,” a laugh or two is almost certain. This movie is definitely “R” rated and for mature consenting adults.  If Netflix and Chill had a movie hall-of-fame, then “Friends Eiffing Friends Eiffing Friends,” is a sure winner on the ballot.

The scene is set in Los Angeles and revolved around a group of three friends, Jacob (Tyler Dawson), Laura (Jillian Leigh) and Steve (Graham Skipper), with the two latter dating. Sexual high jinx ensues when the line between friends and lovers is blurred.

The story shadows Jacob’s point of view. Jacob, who himself is quite selfish, admires his best friends Laura and Steve’s relationship but still thinks that monogamy, is unnatural. Which is why Jacob is surprised when Steve reveals that he has been cheating on Laura with his Italian masseuse and cannot be with just her for the rest of his life. Unbeknownst to Steve, Laura knows about the affair and opens up more than her feeling to Jacob.

Out of work, Jacob poses as a freelance editor and introduced to Sarah (Christina Gooding) for work. The two hit it off and become intimate. When Jacob comes over to Sarah’s for dinner, he meets and lust for Camille (Vanessa Dubasso), Sarah’s hot young roommate. Suspense takes hold and asked what will Jacob do? Will he end up with the girl he lusts for, the girl that could have been, or the girl he actually likes?

Overall, “Friends Eiffing Friends Eiffing Friends” gets three out of five stars. Quincy Rose painted the perfect picture of his idea of pros and cons of friends with benefits for his onlookers. The punchlines are perfectly spaced as to where the audience has not waited to long for a joke. The Drama is not to overbearing as to scare away viewers. The ending wrapped everything up so watchers are satisfied and not left wondering does the protagonist gets the girl or left lonelier than he was at the beginning of the feature. Bottom line, Rose’s entry at Cinequest should be well received. Despite its small screen premiere, “Friends Effing Friends Effing Friends” has big screen caliber.
